This is a story of happy gnomes who have the ability to distill sunshine and bottle it in the form of milk, which they deliver around the village. The scenes with the gnomes are in reddish-orange and white. The forest nearby is inhabited by goblins and they are sad. Their scenes are all in blue-and-white. The goblins can't stand sunshine, because it makes them happy. They attack the gnome village, but the gnomes fight back by bombarding the goblins with milk bottles. Soon the goblins are assimilated and everyone is happy. Why milk? Well, the cartoon was "brought to you" by the Borden Milk Company. - The file was downloaded from Public Domain Movie Torrents.

By 1934, vitamin D was being added to milk via irradiation. It was touted as "The Sunshine Vitamin" and marketed mainly to mothers as a way to ensure strong bones and healthy teeth in children.
This sort of propaganda, featuring bottled sunshine, was an attempt to help the public with fears they might have about the irradiation process.

This is one of my FAVORITE cartoons from when I was very little! I watched it on black-and-white television in the early 1950's! (I really like the part from approximately 1 minute to approximately 2 minutes 45-seconds showing how the elves bottle and deliver the sunshine and including the song "Sunshine"!)

Very early 3 strip Technicolor
If you look at earlier cartoons, you notice a profound LACK of blue. 2 strip technicolor (red and green) was the way things were done back then. It appears like once 3 strip (red, blue and green) came on board, this cartoon went crazy with blue, baby!!

You gotta make your own sunshine..
Some gnomes, who spend the day bottling sunshine (good idea!) must battle the dark people (not racist!) who don't want sunshine at all. Interesting concept, insane songs. Maybe there's something behind this.. I don't know! But fun to watch nevertheless.
